Collection of four classic films starring Doris Day. In 'Young at Heart' (1954) Frank Sinatra plays Barney Sloan, a cynical, down-on-his-luck musician who reluctantly agrees to help his composer friend, Alex (Gig Young), with a new comedy he is working on. However, Barney gains a new perspective on life and love when he meets Alex's irrepressibly perky fianc�e, Laurie (Day). He promptly falls in love with her and the pair express their yearning through a series of classic songs. In 'That Touch of Mink' (1962) Cary Grant plays Philip Shayne, a wealthy businessman who accidentally muddies the dress of Cathy Timberlake (Day) when his limousine drives past her in the street. She arrives at his office to complain, only to be charmed by Shayne into spending the day with him in Philadelphia. Soon he is asking her to accompany him to Bermuda for a romantic holiday. She refuses at first, but weakens when he plies her with mink coats and champagne. 'Lover Come Back' (1961) follows the story of Jerry Webster (Rock Hudson) and Carol Templeton (Day), advertising rivals who are forever competing for the same accounts. When Jerry steals a client from Carol, she determines to infiltrate his company and find out who his latest, top secret, VIP account owner is and woo him to her side. However, the identity of the mystery scientist responsible for Jerry's new product may well provide her with a new perspective on her rival. In 'Pillow Talk' (1959) Day stars as Jan Morrow, a level-headed interior designer who shares a phone line with resident swinging bachelor Brad Allen (Hudson). He annoys her by hogging the line with calls to his numerous girlfriends, while she irritates him by her refusal to concede to his sweet-talking charms. Brad decides to teach her a lesson by seducing her under an assumed identity, but his plans are complicated by mutual friend Jonathan (Tony Randall), who has his own designs on Jan.
